I’ve been struggling with my identity a lot. I’m asexual, heteroromantic, and a girl. I’ve seen a lot of posts saying heteroromantic asexuals don’t belong in the LGBT+ community, especially if they’re cisgender, like me. Your thoughts?

Oh babydoll, disregard exclusionists and their gross musty ideology. Het aces are still aces and aces are a part of the lgbtq+ community. You know you see a lot of this discourse online, but if you were to attend an irl lgbt+ club or event, they most likely wouldn’t care.

Probably the one of the best defenses for het aces I’ve seen is this post by @itsallurs. Check it out.

Hope this helps. Just know that the majority of the ace community welcomes you! <3
